7.  Does DCSAR charge for rescues?

DCSAR does NOT charge for rescues.  Rescue operations are paid for by funds obtained through Search & Rescue specific fund-raising efforts and through the support of the Davis County Sheriff's Office.  People in need of our assistance should not hesitate to call for help and not fear the cost of a rescue.

This is a significant effort.  It often requires that volunteers sacrifice personal interest, time, and equipment to perform dangerous tasks.  Some activities can include dozens of teams and last for several days.  No matter how deep the snow, how bad the weather, how lost the person- when the call goes out, DCSAR responds.
